Summary
This film chronicles a year in the life of Team Slipstream, started by former pro racer Jonathan Vaughters after he quit the sport, disgusted by rampant doping among participants. The members are a mixed bag: a veteran, disgraced by being caught cheating using illegal supplements; an aging vet who will retire at the end of the year; another coming back from a serious injury whose aim is the Beijing Olympic team; and a rising young star. Setting off from the frozen roads of a Colorado winter, racing over the dangerous cobblestones of the Spring classic Paris-Roubaix, and finally arriving at the Champs-Elysees, the grand Parisian boulevard which marks the end of the Tour de France, this riveting, eye-opening documentary takes viewers on an incredible emotional journey, following the ups and downs of an underdog cycling team as they try, against all odds, to ride triumphantly into Paris
